Of the six sonatas for various instruments that Debussy planned to- write towards the end of his life, he was able to complete only three. The first (for cello and piano) and the second (for flute, violin, and harp) were written in 1915; the third (for violin and piano) was completed two years later. It was his last work. Illness overcame him, and a fourth sonata (for oboe, horn, and harpsichord) was never written. Debussy himself said that the mood of the Violin Sonata was in striking contrast with his own at the time it was composed, being ' full of life, almost joyous.' The work is in three movements: Allegro vivo, Intermide (Fantasque et leger), and Finale (Tres anime). Harold Rutland

6-The Pimtico Mystery
Narrator, James McKechnie
Script and production by John Gough
The last programme of this series deals with a cause of death so strange as possibly to be unique. Edwin Bartlett was a successful grocer, a good deal older than his wife Adelaide, who was of English-French origin. At the time of Bartlett's death they were living in Pimlico, and apparently their marital affairs were quite happy.
The dead man's father insisted on a postmortem, and chloroform was found in the stomach. There was no doubt whatever what he died of. But how did it get there? Liquid chloroform is a fiery substance: the slightest touch will burn the mouth. Was it accident, suicide, or murder?
The trial of Adelaide Bartlett was the cause cilebre of 1886.
